A Few of My Favorite Things

Its Thursday and a fun Thursday at that-its Total Social Day with Helene in Between and Venus Trapped in Mars. Today, lets talk about a few of my favorite things  that I am loving lately.

Carmel Toffee Crunch Ice Cream


Last night, I wanted to cry when I got about half a bowl of ice cream when I realized that I was hitting the bottom of the carton. I ran out of ice cream like a total rookie. Normally, I have a second carton of ice cream for emergencies like this but I missed the mark on this one and had a sad night of only a half a bowl (but probably still 2.5 servings) of ice cream.

My bed

I honestly have a love affair with my bed. Most days I have to fight the urge to crawl into it the second I get home at 5 PM and eat dinner in it, blog in it, watch TV in it and sleep in it. Some nights I do better than others at resisting it but other nights, I change into that comfy yellow oversized tee shirt and sweatpants before I can even set down my bags and kiss my husband hello and I head straight for my bed for the night. Its a real problem, so I try and do productive things instead like workout or do a load of laundry before I retreat, but I don't always succeed.

Fresh brewed fancy coffee


Recently Ronnie bought a special pour over coffee maker thing and an Aeropress Coffee Maker and the coffee he's been making me has been the bomb.com. I especially love the cups he makes and delivers to my bed (see above) and wakes me up nicely by setting it on my bedside table. Those cups always taste the best.

Anniversarymoon Plans



We officially booked our trip to Hawaii for our one year anniversary!! We were able to score a smoking deal and get a free flight because of our airline miles, and saved our tax return and got another great deal on a hotel + rental car through Costco. We're going in October and I can't believe how quick it is coming up. We're focusing now on saving spending money in a separate account so we can enjoy ourselves on the trip. I can't wait to wake up every day and drink coffee on the balcony over looking the ocean!

White Collar

Ronnie and I have been binge watching a new (to us) show now that every single one of our shows is on summer break. We are watching White Collar on Netflix and I LOVE IT. The basic premise of the show is a sneaky and very smart criminal makes a deal with the FBI to let him out of jail to be a consultant and help the FBI catch other criminals. The show is amazing and I am not sure how we will spend our time once we finish the last few episodes on Netflix.

Those are just a few things I am loving lately. What about you? What are some of your favorite things right now?

  1. I kind of want to watch White Collar just to see more of the guy in that picture! Ice cream is awesome, which is the reason I can't buy it that often. :( Hitting the bottom of the carton is so sad!!!

    Happy Anniversary!

  9. I'vve never heard of that show but it sounds like it has a good story. I am totally envious of your anniversary plans. I am planning a big trip for next year and it's just way too far away to even get excited yet. Enjoy your coffee and your bed, you deserve it!

  11. Lets talk about beds for a moment. In my last apartment, the bedroom had no windows.... so it was pitch black. You want to talk about difficulties leaving the bed! WOOF!

  13. Um, I need some of that ice cream. Never heard of it, but holy moly, it looks amazing. The fact that you put coffee and Lorelai Gilmore in the same sentence makes me sure that you're my soulmate! I'm dreaming about my bed at the moment.....naptime will happen today. I'm SO jealous of your Hawaii trip. You're going to have the BEST time!!
